Thank You For Helping Us Reach Our $100,000 Goal!

The Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo is pleased to announce we have officially reached our 2020 Annual Appeal goal of raising $100,000. These funds provide the resources to help artists continue to grow and thrive, supporting dance, theatre, music, painting, sculpture, photography, public art, and so much more. 

We are also proud of the fact that 88% of our budget goes right back into the community, supporting programs like Art Hop, Summertime Live, All Ears Theatre, Art on the Mall, as well as our fiscal sponsorship and grant programs.

We would once again like to thank all of those who helped make this goal a reality! A special thank you goes to our anonymous donor that generously matched $50,000 in public gifts.

While the world around us has been in flux over the past several months, there are so many stories of hope and positivity happening within the arts and culture communities. The ACGK looks to offer and create arts and cultural experiences in all shapes, styles, and forms to inspire the community we serve. We focus on creating lasting connections and a foundation of resources that can contribute to the success of arts organizations and individual artists in the months and years to come.

We appreciate your support and the support of others like you. Your donation ensures that we can remain engaged in creative expression that defines who we are as a community, enriches us, and makes Kalamazoo a vibrant and special place to live.
